Good deal on a used AV receiver

JAMES F WIEMEYER, Amazon
5 February 2015
  • Summary: A very decent AV receiver, matches the one on our other HD TV. Even though described as used / reconditioned, it came promptly, fully packaged, not a scratch on it, and works just fine.

User Review

Kansas, Walmart

  • Summary: My T.V audio died. Couldn't get it to sound through my speakers either. Had to get a smart t.v. Ended up with a Samsung 6350. Great little 40" T.V. for the money. But - here is what no one bothers to tell you, and you have to spend hours on hours on line trying to understand. 1. Your new smart T.V. will not work with a receiver that does not have HDMI ports. 2. You can buy a converter, BUT, if you have a sound system, nothing will come through in surround sound.

VSX 524 k review

Review, B&H Photo
30 December 2014
  • Excerpt: It is very easy to set up. You pretty much plug and go. The only down is that you have to connect with componet cables in order to view the menu from the reciver. Not a huge deal. For the price there are really only two or three recivers that are comparable. It is a very good value. Sound is good quality. If you want to bounce your whole house with sound spend the money and get a nicer AV receiver. If you are looking for a value starter receiver this is the one for you.
  • Pros: Easy To Set Up, Good Power Output, Great Sound Quality

Works great out of the box

Always Cogitating, Amazon
15 September 2014
  • Summary: For basic surround sound connections, I just plugged in my Blue Ray Player and Satellite, output to TV, connected 5 speakers (don't have a powered SW yet) - sounds great. I was worried about the complicated instructions of how to set it up, need to connect the TV with a yellow video cable, etc - but so far, that hasn't been necessary. I noticed some complaints are about the remote - I use a Logitech Harmony remote which is indispensable these days whatever your set-up.
